(Surinam, Republic of Mauritius)

Balu shahi is a popular Indian sweet.


It is known as badusha in the south Indian states.

Balushahi/Badusha is prepared at festivals such as diwali as well wedding feasts and any other festive occasion.

Balushahi is available in sweet shops but it is more fun to make it at home.

It has a long shelf life.

So you can make it in advance and keep it for a few weeks.

Because of the long shelf life it is a popular sweet to add to the diwali sweets gift box.

You can keep in for 3-4 weeks without refrigeration. Generally it gets over before that.
